Tattoos and cheeseburgers: D.C.'s blogs

By Lori Aratani

Happy Friday. Did it seem like a long week? Sure seemed that way to me. But never mind: The weekend is here and D.C. area bloggers have some thoughts on where you can get a cheap cheeseburger (Saturday is National Cheeseburger Day), plus where you can hang with the hip and maybe win a prize for that tattoo.

Around the Mall wishes a happy birthday to Harley – Harley-Davidson that is. The motorcycle-maker turned 107 today.

Sept. 18 is National Cheeseburger Day, our friend Laura who writes the Frugal Friends in Northern Virginia blog is good enough to remind us. And what better way to celebrate than with a cheeseburger deal. Frugal Friends has the scoop on where to go.

DC Mud has proof that Sept. 11 design, with its focus on safety and security, doesn’t have to be ugly. Examples are all over D.C. if you know where to look.

Em, who has made it her goal to conquer the entire Metro system in a year, and blog about it on Metro-Venture, shares things she’d like to see WMATA do differently. Call it her Metro wish list, Sigh, don’t we all have one of those?

Mark this on your social calendar. Tim, at The 42 blog remind us that the H Street Festival is this weekend. Here’s your chance to see one of D.C.’s hippest neighborhoods. Proof that it’ll be a good time? There’s a tattoo contest.

That's it for today. Thanks much for reading and have a great weekend. I'll be back Monday with more great posts from the D.C. blogosphere.
